Purple Line Corridor Access Study (CAST) - Recommendation Report
The overall goal of the CAST study is to evaluate multimodal access to the 11 proposed Purple Line Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) Stations within Prince George's County. This report provides an additional piece of the overall plan for the development of the stations by providing further analysis and recommendations for pedestrian and bicycle access that was initiated by the Purple Line Bicycle Hub Location Study (Toole Study) completed in June 2010. Providing effective multimodal access to the stations will be essential to the success of the Purple Line Light Rail system. A number of development projects and sector planning efforts are currently underway providing opportunities to implement new bicycle and pedestrian facilities around the stations. This report will provide additional information to help policymakers, planners, and engineers make better decisions as design of the Purple Line LPA moves forward.
